This film was to be the last made featuring the comedy duo of Pryor and Wilder and its not bad.
Its by no means as good as Stir Crazy, few are, but I found it on par with See no Evil and condidering the condition of Pryor at the time,MS, he pulled out a good performance.
The film actualy started out a bit poor and predictable but it did get better and funnier as it went along. One scene had Pryor at the beginning pretending to be a great street saxophanist,using a tape recorder, which is fairly corny, however it makes up for it later when Pryor is at a gig and a man who saw him playing earlier in the street scene is on stage playing guitar (looks VERY much like Andy Summers from the Police).
He announces Pryor as one the GREAT saxaphone players in the world and you can guess the rest, VERY funny scene.
Wilder's response to being recognised as someone else is great comedy too, had me in stitches, you'd really believe he actually new these people!
It may have done poorly at the box office but its certainly not that bad and is a worthy addition to anyones comedy collection!
3 and a half stars in my book!
